BGR and Qualcomm celebrate Snapdragon™ rebranding with huge giveaway!

BGR and Qualcomm celebrate Snapdragon™ rebranding with huge giveaway!

In an age where mobile device components seem to grow by leaps and bounds every few months, it’s pretty remarkable that a pioneer in the space still manages to find itself among the top chipmakers in the world. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip was the first 1GHz mobile device processor to hit the market when the LG eXpo launched in December 2009, and it kicked off a gigahertz craze that has gained steam ever since. Today, Qualcomm is still a leader in the space and the company on Wednesday revealed the rebranding of its Snapdragon chipsets. Snapdragon chips now fall into one of four series: Snapdragon System 1 (65nm, up to 1.2GHz CPU, Adreno 200 GPU, up to 3G HSPA), Snapdragon System 2 (45nm, up to 1.4GHz CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, HSPA+, 1024 x 768 display, 720p recording, Dolby 5.1, stereoscopic 3D), Snapdragon System 3 (45nm, up to 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, Adreno 220 GPU, HSPA+, 1440 x 900 display, 1080p recording, Dolby 5.1, stereoscopic 3D) and Snapdragon System 4 (28nm, up to 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, up to quad-core Adreno GPU, HSPA+, LTE). System 4 Snapdragon chipsets won’t hit the market until next year, but Systems 1 through 3 can currently be found in 125 commercially available devices. So what might be an appropriate way for Qualcomm to celebrate the new rebranding? Team up with BGR to give away nine different smartphones and tablets, of course! Read on for all the details. More →

SRS iWOW 3D for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch giveaway!

We reviewed SRS’s iWOW 3D accessory for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch three weeks ago and at that time, we were pretty much blown away by the device. Since then, nothing has changed — in a nutshell, we can no longer listen to music on our iDevices without the iWOW 3D plugged in and pumping. But hearing is believing, and SRS Labs was nice enough to send through a few units so we can share the love with our readers. That’s right, we’re giving away five SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe packages along with five SRS t-shirts. Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment below explaining why you should win an SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe pack and a t-shirt
  • Follow @BGR on Twitter and also check out our Facebook page!

It’s that simple. This giveaway will run for one week until 11:59 p.m. on April 26th, and it is open to legal U.S. residents 18 and older. Winners will be notified directly via email, so please make sure you use a real email address when posting your entry in the comments section. SRS iWOW 3D Deluxe packages include one iWOW 3D accessory, five different colored face plates and a pair of in-ear headphones. T-shirts are available in large only. Good luck!
